LONDON, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
It's almost that time of the year again - HAYFEVER SEASON. Did you know there's an eye drops product called CATACROM® that may relieve symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis that are common in hayfever such as redness, watering, itching and puffiness? They are available over the counter from a pharmacy or you can get them prescribed by your GP. Sufferers will typically wait until their symptoms are presenting before seeking treatment and medical advice. CATACROM® contains the active ingredient sodium cromoglicate 2.0% which has shown to be effective not only in treating allergic conjunctivitis but also in preventing it. That's why it's important to start using the drops before hayfever begins; once the season is in full swing your symptoms may be alleviated.

CATACROM® works by stabilising the cells in the eye called 'mast cells' which in turn prevents chemical substances being released and causing the symptoms of allergic reactions. By doing this, the drops in effect help the eye to build up a resistance to allergens so that by the time hayfever or allergic conjunctivitis is a problem; the symptoms may be greatly reduced.
CATACROM® is a single-dose eye drop indicated for the relief and treatment of seasonal and perennial allergic conjunctivitis. CATACROM® is also preservative-free which is particularly important for anyone who is prone to allergies, as some preservatives may cause additional irritation to the eyes.
CATACROM® can be obtained from pharmacists or you can ask your GP to prescribe it. If you are unsure whether or not you have an allergy, always seek medical advice. Always read the label before use.
CATACROM® PRODUCT INFORMATION

ABOUT ALLERGIC CONJUNCTIVITIS
- Symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis include itching, burning, watering, redness of the eye and puffiness of the eye lids.
- Seasonal and perennial allergic conjunctivitis usually affects both eyes at the same time.
- The most important advice for limiting allergic conjunctivitis is to try to keep away from whatever is causing the allergy.
- Keeping doors and windows closed normally helps. A cold compress may also help to relieve sore eyes.Anti-allergy eye drops containing sodium cromoglicate can help to relieve the symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis.
- Use of preservative-free eye drops may be particularly beneficial, as this limits any potential for additional irritation to the eyes caused by preservatives.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
